A good summer skirt and a useful review, particularly the notes about the grainline placement of the skirt pieces.

Great review, Riesie, and such a cute little skirt. I too like it best when the straight of grain goes down the middle of the panels instead of the side seams (so much more flattering), AND I like the wider hem for the same reason you stated. Once you get that slip whipped out, you'll be in business!

What a great summer skirt. I have this pattern (for the jacket) and didn't even think of the skirt. Now, maybe...

Nice skirt and I'm sure the slip will be coming soon so you can wear this beautiful skirt and feel comfortable.
